Nickelodeon Announces Spongebob Squarepants is a Member of the LGBTQ+ Community

To celebrate Pride month, Nickelodeon sent out a tweet that has the internet believing Spongebob Squarepants might be gay.

“Celebrating #Pride with the LGBTQ+ community and their allies this month and every month.” the network wrote.

The tweet included three images of characters from the Nick roster: SpongeBob, Schwoz Schwartz from Henry Danger, and Korra from Avatar: The Legend of Korra.

Michael D. Cohen, who plays Schwoz Schwartz, shared that he transitioned from female to male about 20 years ago and Korra identifies as bisexual —  leaving social media to speculate that SpongeBob is part of the LGBTQ+ community as well.

Listen — if you’ve watched enough Spongebob, you would’ve already known.
